Drilling Impacts to the Surface Owners

Many landowners that may potentially have drilling conducted on or near their properties are probably wondering what the impact of horizontal drilling will be. Questions abound: What is the process? How long does it take? What type of equipment will show up? What is that equipment for? How much acreage is needed for the operation? …

At the Niobrara News we will provide detailed information scoured from many sources with as many pictures as possible to explain the drilling process. Until our Drilling pages are constructed many people will find the information at the North Dakota Petroleum Council’s Surface Owner Center to be invaluable. We highly recommend viewing this resource as the drilling in the Niobrara will follow similar procedures with minor modifications that will vary based on  Niobrara geology.
